Termites start to swarm in the spring months and can create a colony on your property. Here are a few not-so-fun-facts about termites.
- Termites swarm throughout the warm season, but not as much as during the springtime.
- Colonies may swarm multiple times. Later swarms do not math the intensity of the first swarm.
- Subterranean termites swarm during the day, although Formosan termites (a species of subterranean termite) swarm at night.
- Swarm flights are brief, aided by prevailing winds. Winged termites do not fly too far but can be carried great distances by strong winds.
